FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transmitting web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any obstacles.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts that can access the exact same folder – if you would like several persons to be able to access the exact same website content with completely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers do not involve a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your website files and to update your sites without a hitch. If you want to stop the access to your website content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP client programs. Furthermore, we’ve prepared detailed help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server from us, you will get the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve selected during the subscription procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Based on your necessities, you can create a different FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a given folder – in case you would like to permit different individuals to be able to access that folder with their own log-in details. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account before or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your VPS, since everything’s done via an easy-to-use GUI and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
